United Goods' founder and CEO, Christy Johnson, started working as a freelance graphic designer and artist in 2003 in Minneapolis, Minnesota. Christy draws State Icons, which are high-quality, mini framed landmark prints that celebrate the nation's iconic buildings, signs, sculptures, and statues. They are drawn with a mouse on the computer, and carefully printed with archival-grade paper and inks. The giclées are then finished in wood frames that are hand-made by Christy's parents.

This is something like my eighth United Goods mini print, and none of them disappoint. Christy drew this one up for me when I requested it. It's nice to have something so personal created just for me.
I absolutely love the prints that Christy creates at United Goods! I have my own collection and often give them as gifts, too. They are beautiful and unique.
So easy to personalize, and quick to respond to my question confirming the order. I gifted this print to a friend, who had purchased a State Fair bench in honor of her late husband. This was a lovely reminder for her. Thanks!
